captioning made possible by johnson & johnson, where quality products for the american family have been a tradition for generations good morning. i'm charles osgood and this is sunday morning. just three days to go before halloween. a night for witches and goblins and all manner of superstitions. and though the scary beings are out for just that one night, our superstitions go on all yearlong, defying reason and common sense. why is that? that's a question susan spencer will be trying to answer in our sunday morning cover story.
6:01am
>> reporter: from black cats to broken mirrors, horse shoes to rabbit's feet, we are all susceptible to superstition. >> i think only 40% of americans believe in evolution. >> reporter: what percent of americans believe in superstitions? >> over half of americans have some kind of superstition that they believe in. >> reporter: so when was the last time you knocked on wood? later on sunday morning. >> osgood: knocking on wood is a strategy the white house contenders might want to consider in these waning days of a very close campaign. though he's not on the ballot, former president bill clinton is very much in the spotlight this fall in all sorts of ways. he talks about it this morning with rit a braver. >> president bill clinton. reporter: he may be the most active former president in history. >> thank you. reporter: but he worries about what will happen when his wife steps down as secretary of
6:02am
state. you haven't seen that much of each other because you're traveling and she's traveling. >> it's one of my great fears. i'm afraid i'm going to bore her to death. >> reporter: ahead on sunday morning, keeping up with bill clinton. >> osgood: christopher walken is a real character who has played some real characters over the years. what is this veteran actor like in real life? with tracy smith this morning we'll find out. >> reporter: he scared us half to death. and killed us with laughster. now, christopher walken is going to make us cry. you don't do anything terrible in this movie. >> no, no. i'm really good. i'm a very nice man. >> reporter: we take a pause with christopher walken later on sunday morning. >> osgood: what, me worry? that's the motto of mad magazine
6:03am
called mad. it's the sort of magazine mo rocca grew up reading. ♪ >> reporter: it's a good fact that the first magazine to ever make you laugh was "mad." and at 60 years of age, "mad" is still making fun of everything and everyone. >> we don't care who we're going after necessarily as long as they deserve it. >> reporter: ahead on sunday morning, "mad" magazine, older and not a bit wiser. >> osgood: anthony mason talks with singer norah jones. seth doane attempts to divine the secrets of the ouija board. we'll do our best to take halloween's number and more. but first the ed lines for this morning the 28th of october, 2012. the so-called super storm now bearing down on the east coast can potentially effect some 65 million people. sandy is currently a category 1 hurricane with 75-mile-an-hour
6:04am
winds. it's expected to make land fall tomorrow night or early tuesday along the delaware or new jersey coasts. it's not just winds causing concern. sandy's storm surge is expected to be five to ten feet in some areas. evacuations are underway. it's already an unusually big hurricane. it's expected to join forces with other storm systems to the north and west of it. sandy has claimed 65 lives after churning through the caribbean. most of the dead in haiti. chip reid is on the storm watch in ocean city, maryland. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. as you can probably tell, the wind and the surf have really picked up here in ocean city. but it is still very unclear exactly where hurricane sandy will first hit land. so governors from north carolina to massachusetts have declared states of emergency, authorizing them to call in the national guard. at the home depot a few miles from the maryland coast worried
6:05am
snappers were snapping up plywood, generators, flashlights and whatever else might help protect them from the wrath of hurricane sandy. >> where we are there's a lot of trees. right outside ocean city. so we're taping our windows. >> reporter: you're taking this very seriously. >> yes, we are. reporter: in delaware the governor ordered mandatory evacuations from coastal communities. in atlantic city, new jersey, officials plan to close the casinos and have ordered tourists and residents to leave town. new york officials worried that the subways could flood are considering shutting them down. but this storm is threatening much more than the coast. drenching rain, massive flooding, and even snowstorms are forecast all the way to the great lakes. about 64 million people are potentially in the storm's path. more than one in five americans. here in ocean city, maryland, the mayor is warning that severe flooding is likely. he's told people in low-lying
6:06am
areas especially in the south part of the city to prepare to evacuate. charlie. >> osgood: chip reid, thank you. as for the latest on the storm's path we go to hurricane watcher meteorologist david bernard at our cbs miami station, w.f.o.r.-tv. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. we have the latest on hurricane sandy. sandy is continuing to move to the northeast at around 10 miles per hour, 75-mile-an-hour winds. no change in the expected intensity or the track. we're still looking for it to cross the mid atlantic coast line or the northeast coast line as far north as long island sound monday night into tuesday morning. that's when some of the worst weather is going to be. that's when the highest chance for significant winds that could cause power outages are going to begin to occur. >> osgood: meteorologist david bernard. thank you. sandy is turning out to be an october surprise for both presidential campaigns. with election day just over a week away, both mitt romney and president obama are canceling
6:07am
appearances and otherwise trying to steer clear of the storm's path. a magnitude 7.7 earthquake rattled the western coast of canada early this morning. there are no reports of casualties or major damage. a tsunami warning that was in effect for hawaii has now been downgraded ending the threat of serious damage. in the world series last night the cold weather in detroit had little effect on the red hot san francisco giants. as they shut out the tigers 2-0. the giants now have a commanding three games to none lead and can take the best of seven series with a win tonight. today is mother-in-law day and the new study finds that 50% of americans who have mothers-in-law report that they have a good or great relationship with her. how about the 50%? now for the rest of the country's forecast. it will be cooler across the plains and down into texas. some heavy unnamed storms are likely out west. the week ahead looks mostly dryer once sandy has come and
6:08am
gone. next, confronting our superstitions. and later, actor christopher walken. >> my son bought me a cadillac,,
6:09am
6:10am
>> osgood: a menacing ladder, a black cat. perhaps i'd better knock wood before proceeding. no need to apologize if the
6:11am
approach of halloween makes you extra superstitious. many successful people harbor superstitions aplenty. scientists find superstitions a rich field of study. our cover story is reported by susan spencer of "48 hours." >> announcer: sweeney strikes out swinging. >> reporter: casey dagle pitched in the major leagues. >> announcer: a 3-2 pitch to bonds. he struck him out swinging. >> reporter: his wife jenny finch upon olympic medals in softball. >> announcer: called strike on the outside corner. quickly finch is is ahead in the count 0-2. >> reporter: their proud careers were built on talent and, although they don't like to admit it, a little superstition. some of it pretty strange. >> before the game, i would always put my socks on a certain way. >> i would always put my bat bag in the same spot. my helmet. >> if we were the home team, i would go to the bathroom in the
6:12am
fifth inning. >> when it came down to it, i had two favorite sports bras. i wanted that same sports bra for the game. >> if we were away team i would go to the bathroom in the sixth inning. even if you didn't have to go to the bathroom, you went to the bathroom. >> announcer: how about casey dagle. >> reporter: in baseball such routines are routine. legend wade boggs ate chicken before each game. pitcher turk wendell brushd his teeth between innings. and in the classic movie "bull durham," one player wore a garther under his uniform. >> the rose goes in the front, big guy. >> reporter: fans too have countless compulsions. ♪ very superstitious >> reporter: this new beer commercials pokes fun at a few but casey says his routines were no laughing matter. >> there's been times that you forget something or you don't do something and it's sad to say
6:13am
but it's panic mode. it's horrible. yes, ma'am. i mean, thinking about it is absolutely ridiculous but when you're in the moment, i mean, it's not ridiculous at all. it's life or death. >> reporter: give me your definition. what is a superstition? >> a belief or an action that is inconsistent with science. it needs to be aimed at bringing about good luck or avoiding bad luck. >> reporter: count yourself lucky if you're not superstitious. connecticut college psychologist stewart says most people are. in a world where we prize science, it may not be something to be proud of. >> i think only 40% of americans believe in evolution. >> reporter: what percent of americans believe in superstition. >> over half of americans have some kind of superstition that they believe in. >> reporter: so more americans have some specific superstition than believe in he have heution. >> that's right. that's not a good thing. >> reporter: a new cbs news poll for sunday morning finds more than half of all americans,
6:14am
knock on wood to avoid bad luck. 16% won't open up as indoors. 13% carry a good luck charm. and one in ten avoids black cats. at halloween we even have a holiday that celebrates our superstitions. nowhere are they celebrated more than here at the blood manor haunted house in new york city where you're surrounded by snarling black cats and broken mirrors. better bring all your lucky rabbits' feet. >> just think of halloween as an advertisement for superstition. >> reporter: like any good advertisement, superstitions have the power to overcome your rational brain, says cornell university psychology professor tom gillivach. >> one of the interesting things about superstitions is their seemingly arbitrary nature. why 13? why black cats?
6:15am
don't walk under that ladder has no rational bearing. but now you feel like... you're tempting fate. a bad outcome that befall you is going to be worse because you deliberately did something that people tell you you shouldn't do. >> reporter: and is the outcome likely to be worse? >> no. absolutely not. >> reporter: but here's what's really scary. he says our brains are wired to believe this nonsense. to find cause and effect where there is none. >> the baseball player who has this elaborate superstition about putting socks on in a certain order, he noted. he didn't try to remember this. the mind just registered that when he put his socks on that particular day, something good happened. therefore, that becomes hard to ignore. >> one game you go 4-for-4 with two doubles and a triple. well, every baseball player i know, almost, is going to think in their head, what did i do
6:16am
during the day today that got me to go 4-for-4? well, if there's a couple of things that stick out, you bet the bank account they're going to do it tomorrow. >> reporter: that's an even safer bet when things are tense. >> so if you're just a more anxious person, you are sort of set up to be a little bit more superstition. >> reporter: jennifer at the university of texas in austin says superstitions grow out of our need to take charge of situations. >> we become very anxious when we lack control. one of the ways if we can't regain it objectively is to try and regain it per september ally. maybe i can't actually keep something bad from happening to me. but if i knock on wood, then i've done something. right? i've taken action. that can help someone feel less anxious as a result. >> reporter: when anxiety goes down, performance goes up. and that's when superstitions just may work. in one study, researchers gave golf balls to two groups of
6:17am
people. one group was told they had lucky golf balls. the other was not. guess what? those with the lucky golf balls were 35% more likely to make their putts. so maybe jenny finch and casey dagle were on to something. between the two of you, who do you think is more superstitious? >> he is. i would say me. i was ridiculous. >> reporter: no need to feel ashamed. it's the season for such things. even the most scientific among us have moments of weakness. >> i will occasionally knock on wood. even as i tell myself this is not going to do anything. >> i'm not a superstitious person at all. but i was once on a flight coming home from a conference and it was a very turbulent flight. i don't handle turbulence well. a colleague was sitting next to me. he turnedded to me and said,
6:18am
stewart, did you notice we're sitting in the 13th row? for a moment there, i felt like a little anxious. my heart rate went up. and then i realizedded, well, wait a second. if the plane goes down all the rows are going down not just the 13th row. but i think it shows we're all vulnerable to it. >> osgood: coming up, just what is it about a black cat? >> osgood: coming up, just what i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world bursting with opportunities. india, china, brazil, ishares, small-caps, large-caps, ishares. industrials. low cost. every dollar counts. ishares. income. dividends. bonds. i like bonds.

6:20am
♪ a prius for everyone >> osgood: so where do our popular superstitions come from? the compulsion to knock on wood seems to date back to paying and times. when people believed trees were homes to spirits. spirits that could provide good luck for the asking. our weariness of walking under ladders is traced to the early christians who believed the triangle a ladder forms when it leans against a wall is a representation of the holy trinity and that walk through that triangle is blasphemous. religion appears to be the root as well for the belief that the number 13 is is unlucky. 13, after all, was the number of people who shared the last supper on the eve of christ's trial and crucifixion. the fear of black cats goes back
6:21am
to the middle ages when folks associated them with witches and even believed that they were witches in disguise. the idea that breaking a mirror brings seven years of bad luck is a reflection, if you will, of an old belief that our souls dwell in mirrors. and that to break a mirror damages our souls. but on the flip side, horse shoes are considered lucky. because their shape resembles a crescent moon considered a sign of fertility by the ancients. just ahead, what the fates say. >> on rare occasion you'll get the bad guys. it's totally possible that they could come through a ouija board.

6:24am
>> osgood: to sit down as a ouija board is as good as asking it to talk to me. believers in the board and its powers can't wait to hear what it has to say. skeptics not so much. seth doane examines the ouija board from a to z. >> would i want my own kiz, if i had them, playing with a ouija board. probably not. >> psychic and medium chip coffee knows a little something about communicating with the
6:25am
other side and using a ouija board. >> if anything started to get wonky or nasty, we'd end the session completely, say a closing prayer, and put the board up for a while. >> reporter: the ouija board is that seemingly innocuous collection of letters, numbers and words printed on a plank. the idea is is that you ask it a question and then the pointer, calls a planchette, spells out the answer. >> we of the culture love to have the crap scared out of us. can i say that? we love to be scared. that's my definition of the paranormal. you can't understand it. you can't explain it. but can't deny that something is going on. >> reporter: chip coffee should know. he talks on the dead or,... for, well, a living. $159 will get you super v.i.p. access to a seance like this one in chicago. and, yes, a signed copy of his book. he calls the ouija board a
6:26am
gateway drug to the paranormal because it can get you hooked. >> they're very good influences out there. you know, benevolent, benign spirits, mom-and-pop garden variety spirits and ghosts. then on rare occasional you'll get the bad guys. rare as that may be, it's totally possible that they could come through a ouija board. >> reporter: now just imagine asking the ouija, is it safe to live surrounded by hundreds of these boards? what makes someone become a ouija board collector? >> something has to be seriously wrong with them. >> reporter: bob has 500 talking boards in his dorchester, massachusetts home. ouija, he points out, is a brand trademark. >> people who believe in the spirits believe what's happening when you put your hands on this is that the spirit is coming through you using your hands to push the planchette. >> reporter: the spirit is not coming through us right now. >> it might be a little shy. the scientific community believes it's something called
6:27am
idea-motor response. your hands are always slightly moving. they never stay perfectly still. this allows your subconscious to take those moments and make them fluid. >> reporter: of course it's far more dramatic in the hollywood version. >> are there any ghosts in this house? >> reporter: by the '50s it was a horror film staple. >> do you, ouija,... laughing. do you ouija. >> reporter: on "i love losey" the planchette pointed to laughs. >> have you any success with the ouija board? >> oh, ouija board. reporter: how has this endured as long as it has? >> wanting to believe that there is something on the other side or that we can make contact is something that hasn't changed since 1890. >> reporter: 1809 was when the ouija was first manufactured and marketed in baltimore. today the city's museum of industry has an exhibit
6:28am
dedicated to ouija history. >> this is a collection of ouija paraphernalia. >> reporter: catherine duncan is the collection's manager. >> no one knows that the ouija was from baltimore. >> reporter: this is a bit of hometown pride. >> yes. we're a weird town. >> reporter: pictures reveal its place in pop culture. >> it was considered a parlor game, a party game. >> reporter: norman rockwell's cover of the saturday evening post from may, 1920, depicted the ouija as a gateway to more than just another world. >> they're on a date more than likely. it looks like he's trying to take advantage of her more than he should be. >> reporter: legend has it the board picked its own name spelling out o-u-i-j-a. and now a bit of living history. stewart fold and kathy fold are descendents of william fold who owned and ran the company that popularized the ouija. >> i've always said to people, it's just a game. that's how my father felt about
6:29am
it. >> if these things were truly the doorway of the devil, they won't be sold in toys are us. >> reporter: the game, birch explains, was sold to parker brothers in 1966 and is owned by hasbro today. >> this was just marketing. this was a toy, entertainment. the people who made this did not believe in the sense that this was contacting spirits. they just knew people loved to play. >> reporter: they knew they could sell something. and sell they have. tens of millions of them. >> a lot of adolescents and kids love the whel idea of playing with the ouija board. i mean, they made a pink ouija board for girls. >> reporter: the ouija board box, says chip coffee, might pose the biggest question. >> i know that there are those people out there going no, no, no, no, we don't want to use the ouija board. we will not have one in our home. not afraid of it. i just know that you've got to use it responsibly.
6:30am

6:32am
♪ >> it's sunday morning on cbs and here again is charles osgood. >> osgood: that's christopher walken being a real character in a 2001 music video for the song "weapons of choice." typical for an actor who has made a career out of playing one real character after another. he played it straight when he sat down with tracy smith for some questions and answers. >> reporter: i think people would be surprised that you're scared of things like flying. >> yeah, it makes me very uncomfortable. >> reporter: what else are you scared of? >> i'm scared of everything. reporter: really? sure. and i ti it's only sensible to be that way. not scared but nervous about, apprehensive, cautious. >> reporter: well, cautious might not be the first word that comes to mind for an actor known for going all out.
6:33am
in a single seen, christopher walken can be terrified and terrifying. he's been hysterical and hysterical. in fact, in more than 100 movies, there are few things walken hasn't been and few roles, it seems, he's ever turnedded down. >> people have said to me, you know, you've made certain choices and so on. interesting choices. terrible choices. whatever they think. but the fact is i don't make choices. i never have. when it comes to working. >> reporter: what do you mean? i just take the best thing that comes next. there's no hobbies. there's no kids. so going to work is kind of it. >> reporter: it's what you do. it's what i do. reporter: he's been doing it just about forever. born in queens, new york, in

6:35am
the road at night, i see two headlights coming toward me. fast. i have a sudden impulse to turn the wheel quickly, head on into the oncoming car. >> why? ell, i have to go now, duane, because i'm back on the planet earth. >> reporter: and the following year it all took off with an oscar-winning turn as a tormented, small-town boy sent to war in the deer hunter. but if christopher walken's on-screen persona says unstable, his real life is is more fairy tale. he's lived in the same house in wilt on, connecticut, for decades, and has been married to the same woman since 1969. >> i've been married for, you know, nearly 50 years. >> reporter: fantastic. no kids. why no kids? >> i don't know.

reopened the investigation three years in? >> yes. reporter: did you think it was settled? >> no. i didn't understand that. >> reporter: why they opened it again. >> still don't, no. reporter: have you talked to police about it? >> no. i've talked over the years i've talked about it. and the truth is that i haven't talked about it in 30 years. >> reporter: if they open the investigation again, are they reinterviewing everybody? >> i don't know. let me know what happens. >> reporter: over the years, walken's films have grossed more than $2 billion. >> my son bought me a cadillac today. i think that calls for a toast. >> reporter: but his voice has become a comedic cottage industry of its own. >> a lot of people do it. reporter: who does it best? you know, my wife says that kevin spacey... >> he's crazy that way. ... kevin pollack.
6:38am
three little kittens, they lost their mittens. >> counties jay moore. it's too rhythmic. the sentences go like this. like poetry. >> when people do it in front of me, i usually don't know what they're doing right away. >> reporter: seriously? you can't tell it's you? >> no. and i think... i always think, you know, why are they speaking that way. >> reporter: besides his voice, walken's other trademark is his hair which he says he owes to a bit of advice he got long ago. >> i became friends with tony perkins, the actor. he said to me that's some head of hair you got there. he said you know what you do? just grab it every morning for five minutes and pull it forward. yank it as hard as you can. >> reporter: so you really pull on it every morning. >> i yank on it. i watch tv. it keeps your scalp loose so if you can keep it loose, you're going to keep your hair a little more. i've got a lot of hair for

6:58am
( cheers and applause ) his speech at the democratic national convention was a huge hit. >> we believe that we're all in this together is a far better philosophy than you're on your own. >> reporter: yet he even got mitt romney... >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> reporter: as well as president obama. >> you continue to be a great treasure for all of us. >> reporter: when he got both to appear at his annual clinton global initiative meeting in new york late last month. why do you think that's going on? what's happening? >> well, first, i think a lot of it is when you are out of office and you're out of the line of fire, you become less of a
6:59am
target. so people did me all the i'm, do you think you're doing more good now than when you were president? and i say, no, but i understand why you think that. >> reporter: in fact, the good will that clinton now engenders is inextricably tieded to his good works. the c.g.i. or clinton global initiative brings together leaders in all sorts of fields, connecting private donors with public needs. it's been involved in everything from building the first cancer center in east africa to constructing affordable, energy-efficient homes in new orleans where the president teamed with movie star brad pitt. >> now the ninth ward, this place that has suffered a horrendous tragedy and decades of neglect, is now the premiere template for how we will build our communities in the future. i think that's an amazing
7:00am
success story >> we started eight years ago and had this premise that people were actually dying to be asked to do something. and given some options that would make sense so that if they gave their time or money or whatever to a specific cause, there was a reasonable chance that something good would happen. >> reporter: and president clinton proudly told us at the c.g.i. meeting the organization has already touched people all over the world. >> we can measure things that have happened that have helped in some form or fashion 400 million people in 180 countries >> reporter: that's a pretty impressive number right there >> and the commitment if when fully implemented will be worth about $70 billion >> reporter: he says that not being president has made it easier to get some things done. >> in my current role, i don't
7:01am
have any responsibility for the incoming fire >> reporter: so you can choose what you focus on >> yeah. i can worry about the trend lines more than the headlines >> you need to re-elect president barack obama to do it. thank you and god bless you. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: still he knew he would make headlines when he jumped into this year's political fray. i don't remember a president in my lifetime that has done this. why have you done it? >> because i think if america makes the wrong decision, it will have very damaging consequences. and i've done it more than anything else because i believe president obama has made better decisions than many people give him credit for. >> reporter: but he is aware that his political advocacy could have repercussions for his charitable works. you have had a lot of republican support for these projects. have you been worried at all
7:02am
that you're sort of... your sort of reentry into the political world... >> yeah reporter: you have been? i was playing golf with unof my friends this summer. i thought i was going to talk him into voting for the president. he said to me, he said, "are you really going to give a good speech?" i said, "i'm going to give the best one i can." he said, "god, i hope you screw it up." so i'm worried about it a little bit >> reporter: president clinton seems to have mellowed. after a heart by-pass operation, he's become a vegan and an advocate for healthy eating for kids. and he's also able to look back with understanding, even at his former political enemies. >> it's easier for me to forgive people for things they did to me when they were trying to keep me from beating them. i got it. you know, it's just life is too short. if it has no bearing on
7:03am
tomorrow, i try to let it go. >> reporter: of course there's a big question about what could happen tomorrow. or at least in 2016. you've been asked before. you've said you don't know if secretary clinton will run for president. but do you wonder why she might even want to, given how hard it is and how hard she's already workd? >> well, she may not. i say this like a broken roar. i thought when i met her, i think today she's the ablest public servant i ever knew. if she wants to run i'll support it. if she doesn't, i'll try to make her happy for the rest of her life. >> reporter: meanwhile, he stays focused on matters at hand. last weekend after hitting the campaign trail, mr. clinton made time to tour a recently retrofitted loreaal cosmetics
7:04am
plant in little rock in his native arkansas. it's using federal stimulus funds to work with his climate initiative. >> when you hear people say, oh, the world would come to an end if we had to cut our co-2 emissions. you know, 50% by 2030. this whole company is going to do it by 2015. they're making money doing it. >> reporter: at age 66, william jefferson clinton says he feels happy and fulfilled. but he often seems to be pushing himself in a race against the clock. sometimes it almost sounds like you, you know, you're working... looking in the mirror and looking at your own mortality >> but i have all my life. keep in mind, my father was in his 20s when he died in a car wreck before i was born. you have to go back to my maternal great grandfather who lived to be 76 to find... any
7:05am
man who lived as long as i did. to me i guess it sounds morbid or spooky to some people. to me it's just as natural as the water flowing. i feel great. i'm determined to live to be a grandfather. so i'm doing my best here. but i just think that the older you get, the more you think you want every year to count. >> osgood: what? him worry? just ahead. twenty-three billion dollars d over to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support nearly 250,000 jobs and invest more here than anywhere else. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger.

7:10am
>> reporter: for a long time mad was the only game in town. but it soon inspired other class clowns to take up the funny business. from graydon carter's own spy magazine to the onion. >> mad magazine? reporter: to america's most famous ten-year-old. >> excuse me. is this mad magazine? >> no. it's mad mois he will. we're buying our sign on the installment plan. >> reporter: when i'm watching the simpsons, i kind of feel like it's mad animated >> i think that's a perfect analogy. clearly you can see roots from mad into the simpsons. in fact, you can sort of find mad everywhere but each generation takes mad and then i think reinterprets it. >> reporter: being parodied in mad can be a badge of honor >> i think a lot of people feel that way. it's sort of like a stamp you've arrived in pop culture >> reporter: others vfnt taken it so well. any celebrities that were

7:16am
there are different kinds of people. and they're fascinating. i mean i like myself but a country full of me, could that work? ultimately no. i'm a liberal. i love the mix of voices and the larger perspective. of or pertaining representational forms of government, rather than air to be arrests and monarchees. the united states isn't run by the wealthiest or by some sort of birth rite. we participate by our vote and elect leaders to represent us. president lincoln's gettysburg address is a constant reminder. the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. shall not perish from this earth. one person, one vote. that's a precious right. that's liberal. believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change. so there's the constitution. the founders built in the ability to amend it and to pass laws to form a more perfect union. things like, oh, abolishing slavery and segregation, giving
7:17am
women the right to vote and to choose, repealing don't ask don't tell so regardless of who you love you can serve in the military. plus our government has programs to help level the playing field so that everyone can succeed. like the g.i. bill. the lily ledbetter fair pay act. medicare. pell grants. head start. unemployment. is there anyone who hasn't benefited from at least one of these programs? fairness. that's liberal. and tending to give freely, generous. okay. the generous part i've overdone in some relationships. working on that. but generally give ing is a good thing, right? in fact, there's a small town called liberal, kansas. founded in the late 1800s. and was thusly named because a land owner there named s.s. rogers was liberal in letting others use his well when there were droughts. giving. that's being a liberal. in my humble opinion, there's nothing wrong with that.
7:18am
>> why am i a conservative? well, for one thing, probably many republicans today would not consider me a proper conservative. i believe in raising taxes. that's my sin. i believe in balancing the budget both by cutting spending and by raising taxes on the very rich by a lot since they can afford it and by the ordinary rich by a good bit. on the upper middle class by somewhat. we are not responsible conservatives if we leave a defaulted america to our descendents. and the budget cannot be balanced by small cuts in discretionary spending but in a much bigger sense i am a conservative because i am afraid of big government. the 20th century was by far the bloodiest century that we know of in human history. the murder of tens of millions by the nazis and the communists in europe and asia were carried out by governments claimed they were doing good things for the only people who counted.
7:19am
the pure aryans or the prol tear yat are the inner circles of dictatorship. it was carried out by big roman imperial government. where government is big by definition the individual is small. that means his or her life counts for little or nothing. for me as a conservative, the protection of the individual life at every stage is the goal of humanity. not a workers' paradise not a racially pure state of supermen but a state where the protection of the ordinary human is paramount. i am a conservative not because i want to see a nation and a government where conservatives dominate but because in a phrase of my old pal conservative political writer, i want to see an america where there's totally safe to be either a liberal or a conservative. i'll add in my own words or a businessman or a worker or a white man or a black man or a latino woman or an asian woman. i am a conservative because i
